How To Do Color Separation In Photoshop

Transcript:

What is a print squad? I am back with another tutorial video and today. I’m gonna be showing you guys how. I do color separation in Photoshop. So basically, what I did was. I went here on Google and I typed in Tigers football and I found the logo that I wanted to use to show you guys how to do color separation, And before I get started, I just want to, UM. I guess say something to the people. I have a lot of people on here. They come on here and they’ll talk about things such as that’s copyrighted images. You know, you’ll see what happens if you use copyrighted images. All those people, this may not be the channel for you because this channel is all about teaching, and when you start a business or you have a business, you have to be able to use your brain and do what’s right for your business. So this image that I’m using. Today, I’m using it as a teaching tool, so if you want to tune in and you’re interested in learning, then stay tuned, but if if you’re interested in criticizing or having a discussion about something that doesn’t even matter then you know, this may not be the channel for you. Okay, so right here. I just opened up Photoshop and because of the Photoshop, I have as you guys know. I have to go here and hit open, so I have the local that I want to use right here and it has trademark right here, which means it’s actually a trademark thing, but what I’m doing is teaching you how to separate the colors on it. Okay, so in order to separate the colors, you have to use the Magic wand tool so over here. I’m going over to the left side. The magic wand Tool is like the fourth one down. It may say quick selection tool, it or Magic Wand -. So you want to click on you want to right. Click on it and make it say Magic Wand Tool. Okay, so the first thing that I’m going to do, I’m going to take out the color black, so I’m gonna click using the left key on the mouse or the left button on the mouse, and you see the dancing lines around there and the next thing I’m gonna do. I’m going to right-click. Then I’m gonna click on layer via copy, okay, so you may not see much of a difference which are designed by doing that, but if you go over here to the right side where the layers are located, you see, you have a layer one, and you see, you have a background. So if you click on background, the eye, that’s on background, it will show you what we just did so all we did. Was we removed everything that is black and put it on a layer by itself? Now when I color when I cover the eye of the layer one, and and I’m gonna show you guys this first. Okay, right here, if you double, click on the layer name If I was using this for screen printing or whatever I would change this to black, so I clicked on there and it gives me the option. It gives me the option to. Um, change the name if I can type, so that is gonna be the black. Okay, so what I’m gonna do now is I’m gonna click on the eye of this the layer that I just named black and it’s gone. So now this is my background layer again, and I have to make sure that I click on my background layer again to remove the next color. So right here, you see, the background is highlighted, and I just covered up the black just to kind of let you guys see that it didn’t do anything to the original layer. All I did was copy the black and put it on a separate layer. Okay, so what I’m gonna do now is I’m going to take the white and I’m gonna click on it with the left button of the mouse, and then I’m gonna right. Click, use the right button to click. And I’m gonna go down to layer via copy OK, so now. I’m gonna cover this original image once again. And as you see, everything that was white is on here and so this is kind of a problem, but you can really fix this problem in two ways. You this problem like right here? This outline that is why? I should have erased that in the beginning, but because I didn’t, I could because it’s not touching any of the white lines. I can actually delete it now, but I’m gonna delete this layer and redo it just to show you guys the correct way to do it, so I just hit the delete button to delete that layer now. I’m gonna uncover the eye for this original image, and I’m gonna come over to the left side and I’m gonna go down to the eraser tool and I’m gonna use the magic eraser tool and I’m gonna click on the white outside the outline that I do not need, so I click on that and because it’s kind of blocking, you’re gonna have to click on each side of it. Okay, so now I have that, and I’m gonna go back up to the Magic Wand Tool over here on the left pane so now. I’m gonna click on the white, OK? I’ve clicked on the way now. I’m gonna use the right button of the mouse and click once again and go down to layer via copy. And I’m gonna cover the original layer and you can see right there. It’s the white layer, So I’m gonna rename it into white, and now I’m gonna uncover the black layer. So now you can see that we have both the black and the white here and we’re only missing the orange. Okay, so now. I’m gonna go, I’m gonna cover both of these up, and I’m gonna open the original layer back up and make sure that I have that layer selected. And I’m gonna go on here and I’m gonna click on the orange. OK, now that the orange is highlighted. I’m gonna right, click and go down to layer via copy. And now I’m gonna cover the original layer, and I’m as you see. We have the orange right there. I’m gonna rename the Orange And now that I have renamed the Orange. I’m gonna uncover the eyes on the rest of them. So now you see? I have all of the colors and the original layer. I have it! The eye covered on it. So everything is here and all you would have to do. If you want to use this as your image to, you know to screen print or whatever all you would have to do. Is, you know, print each one of them out individually so I would first print out the the black one, and then I would cover the eye on it. Then next I would print out the white one and cover the eye on it and the orange one and cover the eye on it. And basically, that is how you separate the colors, and I will be doing another tutorial on how to get these separated colors ready to screen print.
